With 22 platforms, Brussels Midi is the largest station in Belgium and one of the major stations of Europe. The Eurostar to London calls here, as does the Thalys train to Paris and several high-speed trains to Frankfurt, Cologne, and Berlin. As a result, Brussels Midi is a crucial link in train travel across Europe.
The name Brussels Midi is French, one of Belgium’s official languages. It comes from the fact that the station was very popular in the 19th century with travelers heading to the south of France, also known as the Midi. The station is also sometimes called Brussel Zuid in Flemish, or Brussels South in English.
There has been a train station on the site since 1839. However, the current station only dates back to 1949. Constructed in the postwar Functionalist style, the station was expanded in 1990 to accommodate the Eurostar trains that pass through the Channel Tunnel to reach London. Because of the different immigration requirements, platforms 1 and 2 where the Eurostar stops have border control agents to check passports, whereas other platforms don't.
As the station's Flemish name implies, Brussels Midi is to the south of the center of Brussels. It's an approximately 20-minute walk to the Grand Place from the station, meaning it's possible to start exploring Brussels from the moment you arrive.

Venture underneath the city at the Sewer Museum. This quirky museum explores some of Belgium's hundreds of miles of sewer tunnels and offers a unique perspective on the history of the city. Strange as it may sound, the tours here are very informative as well as entertaining.
Visit the 14th-century Halle Gate. This fortified gate was once one of the main entrances to Brussels. It's forbidding battlements now house a museum that explains the role of the gate in the history of the city.
Shop like a local at the Abattoir. You'll find more than just meat at this covered market. Clothes, shoes, herbs, cheese, olive oil, and other items can all be bought here, making for some unique souvenirs or gifts for the people back home.
Get those all-important selfies at Belgium's most famous landmark, the Manneken Pis. This statue of a young boy urinating has become an icon of the city and the Belgian sense of humor. Sometimes, the statue is dressed up for special events.

The Grand Place: Brussels' central square, the Grand Place is surrounded by ornate guildhalls and Brussels City Hall. The site is a UNESCO World Heritage destination and is considered one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. There's always something going on at the Grand Place, so grab a table at one of the many sidewalk cafés and enjoy the spectacle. Due to the near-constant crowds in this area, it's a good idea to drop off any large bags you may be carrying before you visit.

In the summer, it's possible to visit certain rooms of the palace and see the opulent style in which Belgium's monarchs lived for many years. Understandably, security is tight at this location, so make sure you don't bring any heavy bags, as they will not be allowed inside.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
